American Collectors Insurance joined the Trusted Choice® consumer branding program for independent insurance agents and brokers, becoming the first specialty collector-auto and collectibles provider to support the agent brand. American Collectors, a national provider of insurance for collector vehicles and collectibles, joined as a Trusted Choice® company partner.
"Our firm was born as a family insurance agency and remains so today," says Jill Bookman, CEO of American Collectors Insurance, which was founded in 1976. "When we look at the positive attributes of the Trusted Choice Pledge of Performance, we think of the agents with whom we have the privilege to work. American Collectors proudly supports the independent agency system, and especially the agents who have made the commitment to be part of Trusted Choice®."
"Collector vehicles and collectibles are a passion in every state, and agents who give attention to this market are rewarded with strong client relationships," says Dave Evans, Trusted Choice® executive director. "The support of American Collectors for Trusted Choice® can spur greater awareness among agents of the importance of the proper coverages for collector vehicles and collectibles, which present a distinct set of risks as compared with the standard auto market."
American Collectors programs offer agreed-value coverage, choice of deductibles, broad underwriting guidelines, a choice of mileage plans, flexible usage, expense reimbursement plan, and other features designed specifically for collectors.
Trusted Choice® is the consumer marketing identity for more than 24,000 independent insurance agencies and brokerage firms and 68 leading insurance providers. Trusted Choice® was launched by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) to highlight the key distinctions that independent agencies and brokerage firms offer consumers: Choice of coverages, customization of policies, and advocacy support. It is the premier consumer brand for independent insurance agents and provides national advertising and other strategic tools to reach consumers.
